New Hip Hop music albums of 2015
- The Game: The Documentary 2
Lyrically and technically, Game has a renewed focus, telling his West side story with more detail and meaning than ever. Never before has he made his beloved Compton come to life like this, a tense city of red and blue bandannas, high summertime murder rates, and desperate crack fiends
2.Fetty Wap: Fetty Wap
By and large, Fetty Wap, the 24-year-old’s debut album, occupies the same structures raised by “Trap Queen” and the rest of the hits. Revelations are few, which is slightly disappointing given its 64-minute length. Fe-ttys voice, a forceful honk, is so unique that I’m sure he’d pair well with vast, otherworldly production from Kanye West or Travis Scott.
3.Big K.R.I.T: It’s Better This Way
Big K.R.I.T., his second-tier peer, is more versatile in how he catalyzes his influences for either bangers or accessible southern-fried homages. But his records are too often slathered with nostalgia, and K.R.I.T’s just-passable personality reduces his sounds to stew
4.French Montana and Fetty Wap: Coke Zoo
Neither Montana nor Fetty are the type of rapper to wow Latest hip-hop songs heads with their inventive rhyme schemes or complex wordplay. These are guys that win you over with personality and style, and the tape is branded under their joint heading.
5.Raury: All We Need
Raury simple, yet passionate rap delivery doesn’t fare all that well when forced into shared space with established stars of the genre. Though he doesn’t always have something fascinating to say, All We Need shows Raury as a largely likable guy.
